Just a quickie, since information is still scarce. However, sources have indicated that the 'Broadway' processor, designed by IBM for use in the Nintendo Revolution console, is finished.

This from RevoGaming.net:

"Apparently, the "Broadway" processor is finished, and IBM has shown plans and a prototype to Nintendo. After some discussion, it has been shown to select developers. One source said that the processor was a dual-core one, whilst the other would not reveal any technical information."

Nintendo has previously suggested that the Revolution will be just as powerful as the Xbox 360 and the PS3, although it has so far downplayed the specs of the machine, preferring to focus on its unique selling points.

The graphics for the Revolution are being provided by ATI, with a chip codenamed Hollywood. No new details on that - or, in fact, any details at all, as far as we can see.

Is Nintendo stuffed for the next generation, or do you think they'll pull something awesome out of the bag with Revolution? Tell us what you think in the forums.
